No problem with reservations and seating. Our server was Lynn. She explained the specials in a very rushed sequence. When questioned about a certain dish, she said if you don't know what it is then don't order it! Whoa! Several of us ordered the special soup for starters. A large soup bowl with a very small amount of soup. Although... More

Our family from NJ was down in November and own 2 of the top wedding facilities there. They love great restaurants and found La Fontanella to be one of the best. We have recently taken friends here and this family owned restaurant makes you feel at home. The food, service and owners are amazing. Everyone should ear at this restaurant.

In season, be sure to get a reservation. While all the food is great here, the specials, like their osso buco, cannelloni, or pasta del Mare really shine. Their fettuccine bolognaise is terrific. Portions are quite substantial, wine and beer only, great wait staff includes the owner and his son.

Got a last minute reservation on a holiday weekend for myself and my 90 year old mom. They split orders for her, gave us an acessible table, and generally made sure we had a great experience. Plus the food was great.

Our family (party of 6) went here the Tuesday before thanksgiving. We had a reservation and got a large round table in the window which was a nice size. The lighting was glaring over the table which we asked to have lowered a bit but the manager said most clientele wants it brighter. Ok we get that, the eyes can... More

On business in Bonita Springs and once again tired of hotel food so we went and explored as we usually do. Found a nice gem in one of the ubiquitous strip malls that populate the area. Wait staff was very good, obviously been there a while and knew the menu well. We split the cesar which was perfect and had... More

The place was busy, and Moe was treating all the Northern returnees. Always a place to go for well prepared food, an extensive menu and always a good selection of specials, Our table had a pair of veal dishes, and two special Chilean Sea Base - all four perfect.
